We’re back to talk about the Evolution control system for Bryant Evolution Heating & Cooling systems. It is really revolutionary therefore the name. The Evolution control is amazing in what it can do for you and your comfort. This control system is the industries most complete comfort system interface. My favorite feature is auto change over from heating to cooling and vise versa. In my family we have a member who has a chronic illness. When the temperature or humidity swing outside a 3 degree and/or a 10% range she is intolerably uncomfortable. Constant purification of the air is a necessity as well (more on that in another post). There are those May and September days when overnight it’s cool and during the day it’s hot. My Evolution control keeps the temperature within a 2 degree difference without the need of being changed from Heat to Cool – it’s automatic!
I recall an early September night when the temperature was mild but it was very humid. That night the Air Conditioner ran with the furnace blower on its lowest setting, very very slow, which removes the humidity without lowering the temperature. When the Air Conditioner runs on a standard system it will cool rather than dehumidify leaving you cold and clamy. That’s a very uncomfortable feeling wouldn’t you agree?
Here is a list of all the things in a system the Evolution control will manage and control: temperature, humidity, dehumidification, ventilation and indoor air quality all from one central location. Naturally it is fully programable but it is easy to program. It kind of looks like a PDA and is shaped like one with a screen that is large and backlit. The temperature display is the largest in the industry and easy to see from across a very large room. That screen has on screen prompts for programing and adjusting the Evolution control with just a few buttons. It really is very intuitive and easy to use and understand. That’s called user friendly right? Being able to program this control gives you the ultimate in energy efficiency and comfort. You can run a different program for each of the 7 days of the week. So it follows your schedule and lifestyle both. When you’re away it’s easy to set the vacation mode and tell the Evolution control when you will return. It keeps both the heating and cooling at reasonably low settings so it saves energy for you while you are away. Bryant says this feature alone can save you as much as 30% on your fuel bills.
Another great feature is the Evolution controls ability to control the fan speed on your Evolution Heating & Cooling System. There are three speeds plus auto to choose from. In my home we use Med speed continuous fan so that the air purification system cleans all the air in our home 3 times every hour. That’s right it cleanses all the air in our home 72 times every day. You can’t even hear it running while its smoothly giving us complete comfort and truly clean air. It makes an environment that’s better for my health too. Additional devices it manages for you are notices to change filters, humidifier water panels and UV Lamps. I love it - great idea Bryant!
This Evolution control is really a user interface device as all the brains are built into the control board on the Evolution furnace or fan/coil like your computer. Because of this you can install the Evolution control in any existing home that has standard 4 wire thermostat wire (that’s just about anywhere). Think of it as a periferal for your furnace like the screen and keyboard are with your computer. The 4 wire is just a serial interface so installation by All Temp is really easy and the cost is very low.
With the Evolution control there are pop up messages reminding you to change filters or other accessories. The air filter change notice uses a unique way of deciding when to notify you. Instead of being a timed message like other not so similar controls it has the furnace measure the static pressure drop across the filter so you change the filter when it’s loaded not just a regular time. That saves on unnecessary changes of filters that haven’t been used long enought yet.
Want a great warranty from the factory? How’s 10 years on the part and labor as well. That’s a full factory warranty on your Evolution control when combined with your All Temp 95% efficient 355CAV High Efficiency Evolution Furnace. Remember the 355CAV is the world’s best furnace but the Evolution control makes it even better. All Temp who is Bryant’s oldest and largest dealer in the Chicagoland area will back up that factory warranty.
One last thing about the Evolution control – imagine a device that tells you and your dealer when something is wrong with the system. That’s right it is smart enough to let you know when it needs a furnace repair or an air conditioner repair. So in the Chicago and Suburban area if you need 24/7 furnace or air conditioner repair just call at 1-800-ALL-TEMP or read next time and learn how your Evolution control will do it for you. There are two accessory devices you can add to your Evolution control one is remote access and the other is zoning. Both are really cool! Until next time we bid you peace.
